I am going to build a cheap gaming PC and upgrade it over time. Right now what I am looking to buy is:
Ryzen 3 3100 CPU
A B550 motherboard (particular model yet to be determined)
32GB of RAM
+ the various other things needed.
Should I buy now, or are there opportunities that I should look out for as an OzBargainer? I won't be able to play any games until the end of the year because I am busy, so I don't mind waiting if I can get what I want at a lower price. Anything I should look out for?
This is a follow up to my previous post here. As all of you predicted, Boxing Day as a total bust and there was nary a bargain to be seen.
Thanks to a friend, I already have part of my build. My friend gave me his old GTX 1060 6GB. What I need is a CPU, Motherboard, PSU, case, and so on.
Because this is a budget build I am looking at the Ryzen 3 3100 ($159 at MSY). However, I have noticed in the last few days that a few shops now have the Ryzen 3 3300X on preorder(i-tech.com.au) for $225 + shipping. That's not a good deal considering it was originally only $30 more than the 3100. So I will probably get the 3100.
Any suggestions for a B550 motherboard?
